Today is…a day to remember. Just a couple thousand years ago most of the world went about not knowing. The most life changing event ever was unfolding.
Sadly crucifixion was not uncommon. But only men had been crucified. This time the One to hang on the cross was not just a mere man. King. Creator. Author of life.
The unthinkable was taking place. The only One who could save the perishing, who could put an end to all striving, who could say ‘Enough!’ was going to take on all – past, present, future – darkness of mankind. Father/Son/Holy Spirit would be separated. The Son would be forsaken for the sake of the undeserving.
That Friday would have been tragic had it been the end. But it was the beginning. He was, He is, He will always be man’s Savior. He is the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, there is NO other!
Now we await that time promised. It will come. A reunion like no other. Joy without bounds. No more night, only day. No more time, only forever.
While we wait: “The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” (Zephaniah 3: 17 NIV)
In the quiet of your heart do you hear it? A heavenly song sung by the lover of your soul. A song of rejoicing, as He delights in you, quiets you, and is simply and oh so complicatedly with you.
Do you know this Savior? Who do you say He is? This is the most important question you will ever answer.
While you were still a sinner, Christ died for you. He was buried. On the third day He rose again. He appeared to many and departed to return to the Father’s side. He will come back for you. Confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that Jesus died for you. Ask forgiveness for your sins and accept Him not only as Savior but also as Lord of your life.
This is salvation – it is free, a gift – better than baskets with candy, colored eggs, big dinners. Today He is waiting for you… Happy Easter!
